South Herts / Inner Chilterns areas. Budget £200-£250k (cash). We'd love to find a lovely old building in need of some serious TLC which we could turn into our first home. Very flexible as to what - but ideally it would be an older building with at least a bit of a garden. Any condition considered but it's got to be lovely...! We're teachers so could spend a long summer working on it - but obviously would get the builders in for the serious stuff. Needs to be within reach of Edgware, so probably looking at Hertfordshire/Buckinghamshire - currently in St. Albans but would look further out. Please email Andrew and Dora at estragno@gmail.com
